Contrary to popular belief, the white coloration rarely found in cobras can be the result of different things, rather than just albinism. While albinism is the result of no melanin production, leucism, which is a loss of pigmentation, can also result in predominantly white scales!

  • Scientific Name: Genus Naja
  • Characteristics: With immaculate craftsmanship and hand painted details, this cobra figurine captures the iconic essence of the creature, albeit with a unique twist! The texture even simulates the slick, smooth scales present on an actual cobra.
  • Size and Color: Measuring 6 inches long and 2.5 inches in height, our white cobra figurine is a bit larger than a soda can resting on its side. Due to its glistening white scales, this cobra may have a harder time blending in and hunting in the wild.
  • The White Cobra is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free
  • History:

    The largest of all venomous snakes, cobras can grow to be over 18 feet long. Their hood is actually a controllable elongation of their neck ribs that they use to appear larger when they feel threatened. White cobras are exceptionally rare, and there are only a handful of them captive in zoos around the world. Consider yourself exceptionally lucky to observe this unique creature!
